New Delhi, May 01: As the Muslims around the world prepare to bid farewell to the pious month of Ramadan and welcome Shawal with grand celebrations of Eid ul-Fitr, the crescent moon could not be sighted in India on Sunday.
It means Eid will be celebrated on Tuesday, May 3.
The date of Eid-ul-Fitr in India will be decided by various moon sighting committees based on the sighting of the crescent.
As the crescent was not sighted yesterday, the people of Saudi Arabia are observing the fast today.
While the exact date is dependent on the sighting of the moon, it is expected that the event will begin on Tuesday, May 2 in Saudi Arabia and UAE.
